Artist's description:

This artwork is a photograph I took in Exeter, UK as part of my "Photo Abstracts" series. I try to capture details of everyday life in a way that reflects the style of the Abstract Expressionist paintings of artists I love. Mark Rothko in particular,is a huge inspiration to me.
This picture is of some very old and peeling paint on a piece of corrugated metal. The flakes peeling away from the metal have created a very striking study of texture and colour.
I always compose my images very carefully, cropping what I see in a way to create a striking composition. After that, I edit the photographs using photoshop, but in such a way as to only enhance what was really there, not to alter reality, as I think that it is important that these photographs reflect the hidden beauty that can be found all around us.
